Today's Flowers No 32 - but a first for me

I've never participated in this meme even if I adore flowers. Just haven't had that many flowers to present. Or I do have lots and lots of flower photos but none taken this time of year. My blog must follow the right time of year I've decided as it's called Nature Year 2009. That makes flower showing a bit difficult at the moment (unless I go and by some tulips to have at home, which I probably will). Still today I noticed that my mother's christmas cactus had made a flower so I can show it and still keep to my agreement (with myself).

Here is that single but lovely red bloom.



As a bonus here we have some daffodils that are already sticking up on a place were the snow has melted away. Not flowering but it will not be long now.

Tervetuloa mukaan haasteeseen ihanine kuvinesi, kaunis on tuo kaktuksen kukka - kuin perhonen:) Ja kevät kukatkin jo puskevat esiin siellä etelässä, eipä kauaa kun jo sitten täälläkin...

Velkommen til Today's Flower Tarolino! Og så heldig du var som fikk blomst på julekaktusen i rett tid! Min har holdt på med litt småblomstring siden november......

Og deilig å se saftige stilker av påskeliljer - da er nok våre rett rundt hjørnet! Hurra!!

I never had much luck with a Christmas cactus. This one single bloom is lovely!
Those daffodils will be up before you know it. :)

Tarolina: What a nice cactus bloom. Our Dofodils are also trying to emerge.

Oh, I love them sprouting out of the ground!

Love how you left the bits of dirt on the emerging daffodils. I tried to clean some crocuses today before photographing them, and I ended up pulling one out by mistake.

The one red bloom is delightful. Glad you are showing what flowers you have.

Aren't Christmas (Easter) cactus amazing in macro? And it looks as though your daffodils are a lot like mine at the moment!!

The Christmas cactus is beautiful. We have one that blooms each year and is very beautiful. I hope your daffodils bloom soon.

Mutta! Eihan nyt ole joulu!
Joulukaktuksen kukka on kovin herkan nakoinen. Toivottavasti se saa paljon kavereita.
